    Has anyone here set up or uses a dsc 632? What do you think about it?
    Was it easy to program and install, from a DIY point of view?

    Will a snake be suffient to go through insulation? If not what do I
    need to install the wires in walls that have insulation? (Hint: I am
    on a budget with tools)

    Does anyone know of a website that talks about installing security
    systems, wiring mostly but maybe some programming and tips, except for
    basshome.com?

    Thanks

    Drew

    For a DIY, any of the DSC "Power" panels are pretty easy to program. As
    with anything, read the manual (cover to cover)...

    By "snake" are you referring to the spring steel fish tape? That (and a
    little finesse) should be all you really need... :))

    The Sentrol Application Handbook is one of the best installation resources
    around (albeit a little biased towards their products)... Mike Holt
    provides a lot of good advice as well... As for "programming tips", a
    number of them get posted here frequently. If you do run into any problems,
    you can get answers and suggestions here... You may have to wade through
    some BS though...

    actually, it also depends on the type of insulation. The old ground
    newpaper with borax it would probably work. With fibreglass insulation
    it would be harder. that insulation has a paper backing-- it is pretty
    tough, and teh fibreglass itself is hard to push a tape through and even
    harder to pull the wire through (the fibleglass builds up on any corner
    making a big ball which is very hard to drag through anything.) You
    might be able to snake it between the wall and the paper if the wall is
    made of suitable material (eg gypsum board-- ie smooth -- and not lathe
    and plaster).

    You are probably beter off getting that plasic wall mounted ducting to
    run the wires through. It is not too bad looking.
